Amidst the Sokenzan Mountains on the eastern coast of the Ryushu Peninsula, a winding trail leads to the hidden village of Tonkogakure. The smallest of Chusei’s noble families, House Tonko operates far away from the semi-urbanized rivers and grasslands of the rest of Chusei. Often labeled as freaks, mutants, or unnatural by outsiders, members of the Tonko bloodline have eccentric and peculiar talents. Training in the hills, cliffs, and mountains, these ascetics hone their bodies far beyond what is (or perhaps should be) naturally possible. With only perhaps 200 permanent residents, this sleepy village is often overlooked; Tonkogakure prefers this.
